XML::XQL::Date(3)     User Contributed Perl Documentation    XML::XQL::Date(3)

       XML::XQL::Date -	Adds an	XQL::Node type for representing	and comparing
       dates and times

	use XML::XQL;
	use XML::XQL::Date;

	my $query = new	XML::XQL::Query	(Expr => "doc//timestamp[. < date('12/31/1999')]");
	my @results = $query->solve ($doc);

       This package uses the Date::Manip package to add	an XQL node type
       (called XML::XQL::Date) that can	be used	to represent dates and times.
       The Date::Manip package can parse almost	any date or time format
       imaginable.  (I tested it with Date::Manip 5.33 and I know for sure
       that it doesn't work with 5.20 or lower.)

       It also adds the	XQL date function which	creates	an XML::XQL::Date
       object from a string. See XML::XQL::Tutorial for	a description of the
       date() function.

       You can plug in your own	Date type, if you don't	want to	use
	for some reason. See XML::XQL and the XML::XQL::Date source file for
       more details.
